    -10 already here around 7;30 PM in the lower Champlain Valley in VT. I’ve never seen that before. In the past, that much below zero hasn’t happened until at least midnight. Lowest I’ve had since I came here was -20, but I think we’re going well below that tonight.

    I have to confess I chickened out– or I know when I’m beaten. When I saw the prediction for this weekend, I called the oil company and ordered up 100 gallons. Decided to give myself a few days off from wood-burning. No way, no how my little stove can cope with this kind of cold.

    I did light it up a while ago this evening just to see what would happen, though, and man, the draft is a monster! I think you could get dirt to burn in the stove tonight.

    After airport hell and missing a flight, I just want to kill everyone involved in any way with weather in New England.
